Cabazon, California (December 21, 2010) – The Morongo Casino Resort & Spa will now be filled with calls of “Bingo” with the relocation of the “Casino Morongo Bingo Hall” to the main casino floor. Now located inside the AAA Four Diamond resort, the new bingo hall seats up to 300 players and offers Early Bird Games and VIP Member Promotions.
“Relocating the bingo hall to the main casino floor allows us to better serve our players,” said David Brents, General Manager of Morongo Casino, Resort & Spa. “By placing the bingo hall under the same roof as our world-class amenities, we provide our players with the added convenience of staying, playing and dining without having to leave the building.”
The new hall features state of the art 19” electronic bingo screens with picture-in-picture technology that allows players to watch TV as they play. “We are offering the newest and most innovative technology to keep our bingo players in a fun and entertaining venue,” Brents added.
The move comes nearly 30 years after Morongo opened as a humble bingo gaming hall in 1983. In 2004, Morongo Casino, Resort and Spa, as we know it today, opened with a new casino, hotel, spa, restaurants, conference center and pool complex, but the bingo hall remained a separate facility located next to Morongo’s Canyon Lanes Bowling Alley. Now guests can find the hall next to Mystique Lounge inside the casino.
Open seven days a week, the Bingo Hall will provide pack sales beginning at 2:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday with the first “Early Bird” game at 6 p.m. And, on Sunday, pack sales open at 11 a.m. with the first “Early Bird” game at 6 p.m. Early Bird Games cost $250 with regular session games ranging from $500 to $1,000. The new hall will also feature VIP Member Promotions including “Holiday Cash & Free Play Nights,” “Friday Night Birthday Celebrations,” and “Sunday Afternoon Free Play Giveaways.”
“This January, Morongo bingo players will be introduced to a matinee program on Tuesdays and Thursdays that will offer them a Bingo & Potrero Canyon Buffet Lunch package,” said Barry Connolly, Director of Morongo Bingo Operations. “Players that have played with us through out the years since the 1980s will truly appreciate their new gaming experience. Not only are they able to play bingo, but they now have all of the amenities in one place that offers an experience like no other casino offers,” Connolly added.
